Beautiful birds Craig, I like both your carving and painting style.
I carve as well. Currently working on a rig of blue wings and mallards for this coming hunting season
Good for you, I’ll be glad to see’em.
And here I am completely unaware they had blue Wing teal at Chernobyl!
working decoys used 20 to 30 days a year.
Couple birds. Green wing hen is a hunting bird. Bluebill is a discard. Lamination split. I use a woodburner to do fine featherwork. Workers are kept smooth. I use spruce from up here in Alaska. Used to use redwood when I lived in Oregon and NorCal. When I was stationed in South Dakota I used alot of white pine.
I really like the lines of that teal hen.
Teal drake of each species sit on top of my desk at work. I have to make grooved stands for the oak keels to set in. Makes for an easy way to display working birds.
After approx 34 years of collecting dust, the ol boy got to finally float.
It didnt have a keel, so I screwed one on and let him enjoy a sunrise with his plastic cousins and he got to see a few ducks shot.
My landscaping timber decoy will retire to the basement and maybe in 50 years my kids will sell him for $1,000,000.
I hope you enjoyed your hunt Chernobyl Charlie.
Keep on floating him!
